Healthy and Tasty Vegan Recipes

Healthy and Tasty Vegan Recipes

by Angela Smith


From time to time, I will post a vegan recipe on this blog and provide some nutritional information to assist readers who would like to adopt a more sustainable diet.


Today's recipe is Chili Rice Casserole.  This recipe provides nearly 4x (4 times or 400%) the iron per serving than found in a serving of meat and slightly more protein than found in a serving of meat.  In addition, it is a 99% fat free dish!  One serving of this dish amount to approximately 425 calories and it is very satisfying! 


Chili Rice Casserole


1 - 15 oz. Can of Vegan Chili (Hormel's Vegetarian Chili is vegan and other brands have vegetarian and vegan options as well.)


1 Cup of Uncooked Rice (2 Cups of Cooked Rice--I prefer white rice with this recipe)


1 & 1/3 Cup of Corn


Directions:  Prepare rice per package instructions.  Add Chili and Corn, stir until all ingredients are evenly distributed and mixed.  Heat for 5-7 minutes on low/simmer.  And, enjoy!
